In Memoriam

There are many ways to honor a loved one after their passing. We offer both planned giving and options for giving in memoriam.

Endowment (Planned Giving)

The Endowment Fund was established as a way to keep our church secure in the future. The fund is invested in a diversified portfolio of equities and bonds and has been growing over the years. A planned gift focuses on future needs. It will help secure the continuation of ministries, create new programs and outreach, provide improvements of church buildings, and more.

You can also find more information on estate planning and charitable giving here.

Memorial Garden

The Memorial Garden provides a beautiful natural area in close proximity to the church where people can find a peaceful environment in which to meditate on the cycles and meanings of life. All memorial plants are tagged with both the type of plant and the name of the person being memorialized. The people’s names are installed on the memorial plaque in the Sanctuary. In this way our members and our congregation as a whole can honor and remember our loved ones who have died. 

Mission Fund Drive

The annual Mission Fund Drive ensures that we can continue to live out our mission of Practice Love, Explore Spirituality, Build Community, and Promote Justice. It gives us the opportunity to support our amazing worship services, grow lifelong learning programs, and fairly compensate our staff.


Our annual Auction is a great event that helps raise money for the Mission Fund, by giving people the opportunity to have a fun night of bidding and tapas. Members donate activities and events that build community and let members fill their social calendars for the year to come.
